strong action through the u.n. security council. the head of the japanese affairs bureau spoke by phone with the u.s. special representative on north korea, glen daveys and south korea's chief negotiator. they agreed that the launch clearly violates u.n. security council resolutions that ban north korea from launching any rockets using ballistic missile technology. japanese ambassador to the u.n. said he has asked the security council to take up the issue. the council has decided to hold an emergency meeting on wednesday. the world has been focusing on one of north korea's few allies in asia. nhk world's takafumi reports from beijing on china's response. >> reporter: chinese foreign minister spokesperson condemned the launch in a routine news conference. >> translator: it's regrettable that north korea went ahead with the launch despite the international community's close attention. as a member of the united nations, the north has the obligation to respect security council resolutions. >> reporter: but the chinese official expressed a kosher stance toward additional sanctions against th
it. they were pretty clear today they were not about to start supporting u.n. sanctions against the north, but we have a new leadership here, and there are signs he may be less indulgent of north korea, less indulgent of a nation which officials here privately have likened to a spoiled child. so it may well be we'd see a different tone in relationships with china, and, of course, this may be crucial going forward in terms of what can be done and indeed what can be done to prevent another nuclear test, which has been hinted at by pyongyang, andrea. >> thank you so much, ian williams in beijing tonight. >>> joining me now is michigan congressman mike rogers, chairman of the house intelligence committee, also a former fbi agent. thanks for being with us. what is the significance and what do we know about the success of this, because there had been prior attempts, all failures, but this one seems to have worked. >> it seems to have worked according to plan and maybe worked beyond what we expected and maybe even what the north koreans expected. this puts them clearly on a path, you k
both. >> reporter: after the u.n. security council disbanded without announcing any punishment, the white house and state department signaled intention to outsource the job to the north korea patron state china. >> i think you saw the chinese make clore their opposition to this launch, prior to it and the regret over the fact it took place after it happened. >> we are very much ready to engage with our colleagues on the council. we will be searching for a clear and credible response. >> kim jung un is expected to capitalize on the boost of the internal standing that the launch provided to move to conduct another nuclear test. five years ago, then senator obama vowed for diplomacy with dictators like kim. >> would you be willing to meet with the leaders of iran, syria, venezuela, cuba, north korea? to bring the gap the divides our countries. >> i would. the reason is this. the notion that somehow not talking to countries is punishment to them, which has been the guiding diplomatic principle of this administration is ridiculous. >> yet, it was under the bush administration that t
economic power. >> there no tangible signs of improvement. the u.n. program said 16 million north koreans or nearly 70% of the population suffer from malnutrition. north korea's relations with the outside world are at a stand still. last february the united states agreed to provide food aid in exchange for being free of the ballistic missile tests. the deal was welcome after the north tested a missile. north korea's leadership has been trying to hold talks with the united states, but officials in washington said they are not ready to accept. china is also applying pressure on its neighbor. arguing that the missile launch could violate u.n. resolutions. nhk world. >> the professor is an expert on the korean peninsula. i spoke with him to get more insight into the korean missile launch. i started with asking him the intention of north korea. >> the mostortant thing for pong i don't think is to appeal or to empathize with their own rights or so they said the most independent sovereign ty is the most important point. peaceful use of the nuclear energy and the other is the peaceful use for out

the matter to the u.n. security council if they go ahead with the launch. >> we will be prepared to work with our partners, including the united nations security council, to respond in a swift, effective, and credible manner. >> davies said the u.s. could strengthen sanctions. he said existing penalties have already hampered north korea's nuclear program. davies has been holding discussions with his counterparts from china as well as japan and south korea. he said he hopes the chinese can use their influence with their allies in pyongyang. >>> south korean foreign minister kim sung hwan has criticized north korea for spending more than $500 million on missile development. kim told a parliamentary committee that north korea is believed to have spent $400 million to build the tongchang-ri launch site and another $150 million for a missile plant outside pyongyang. unification minister yu woo-ik said the north has scheduled its next launch around the anniversary of the death of kim jong-il to enhance the authority of his son and successor, kim jong-un. yu said the north is also working to im
. then this is the first time that foreign minister met with hillary clinton on assad, met with the u.n. mediator and we're being cautioned this is no break through but there will be follow-up meeting. seems some u.s. officials russia is hedging its bets or beginning to see a future without assad. >> i think that's the case. we've talked about this before, but there is a russian card to be played, to be played by russia itself. they have influence with president assad, they have interests in syria, and i think that they can see the handwriting on the wall that assad is eventually going to go, whether it's in the near term, long term, eventually he's going. you can see the shift in momentum as far as the rebels now starting to gain much greater military success than they have in the past. they've been weapons that have been able to take some helicopters out of the air, shoulder-fired missiles, et cetera. i think they can see the shift taking place and want to be in a position to help negotiate some sort of an acceptable ending to this where they can play the role of a peacemaker. so i think not with stan
that the north is testing a ballistic missile technology and violating u.n. resolutions and further destablizing the korean peninsula. so many hot spots in the world today to watch as we welcome you on this friday morning to a brand new hour of "america's newsroom." i'm martha maccallum. bill: i'm bill hemmer welcome to you at home. good morning to you, again, martha. we're watching the second launch attempt since kim jong-un took over after his father's death a year ago. the last try failed. here is the head of the u.s. pacific command keeping a watch on this. >> we're approaching once again a potential violation of a u.n. security council resolution and we encourage and the leadership in north korea to consider what they're doing here and the implications on the overall security environment own the careen peninsula as well as in asia. martha: molly henneberg is live. north koreans may have run into a snag with this launch plan which may be biding some time. what can you tell us about it? >> reporter: martha, a weather snag. snow may have slowed north korea's efforts to put the missile together
that from happening? >> i think what the united states and others are going to do is go to the u.n. security council and try to lengthen the list of sanctions against north korea. it is the most sanctioned country in the world, but the real question is is there anything you can do beyond that? they are still able to cross the threshold, and even if it is a few years before they could put a nuclearized warhead on a missile, there is nothing we are doing now that is impeding the process, and whether it is a few years from now or a year from now, it is coming, and we do not have an answer for it. >> how concerned are you buy what we are looking at at the moment? >> i think if you step back from the specifics of the launch, we have to realize we are now in a situation where you have a small, isolated country that is the first country outside of china and the soviet union to demonstrate long-range ballistic missile technology, and it is a country that has a horrible proliferation record. this is not just a problem associated with north korean on the peninsula. it has broader ramifications. >> tha
starting to be, the u.n. sanctions started to kick in, and they were, you know, at least ten documented attempts by gadhafi where gadhafiments the -- wants the international community to agree to let him back in, create the conditions for reversal, and so that narrative is not quite accurate. the weapons of mass destruction as well. gadhafi had a tendency for years to collect large amounts of weapons which were defective or nobody knew how to use, and this was -- this was not -- again, i'm not a nuclear expert, but i've certainly read most of the public sources on this subject, and the consensus that i see -- well, there's not a consensus, but there is a feeling among prominent scientists and observers that gadhafi was very far from a nuclear weapon, and further, the u.s. really wasn't -- the community really wasn't concerned about gadhafi, which was the other thing. gadhafi believes that he was the focus of u.s. attention or should be, and that -- and, you know, he must do something to escape this -- undoubtedly would be a very unpleasant consequence for himself. to the libyan people,
isolated after the launch but officials could or would not say how. the u.n. security council met behind closed doors today. diplomats condemned the move and say they will continue to meet to formulate a "appropriate response." that could range from a toughly worked but ultimately meaning less resolution to the tightening of sanctions of the most heavily sanctioned state. the cooperation of the allies on the security council, china and russia, is far from assured. >> members of the council must now work in a concerted fashion to send a message that the violations of u.n. security council resolutions have consequences. in the days ahead, the united states will work with partners on the security council as well as our partners in the six-party talks and other countries in the international community, to pursue appropriate action. >> the state department said today that if kim jong-un wants to send his time and money in shooting off missiles rather than feeding his people that is his decision. analysts expect him to act swiftly to conduct a new nuclear test to capitalize on the boost the su
to be a clear and credible response. what should that be? >> well, we have a very strong resolution before the u.n. security council. it's likely china will try to water down those provisions but it's also certain that the provisions will pass. >> you don't think china will try to veto it? >> i don't think they will veto it. they don't want north korea doing this. >> china is the only ally that they really have. i wonder, do you think it's possible they didn't inform china in advance of the timing of this launch? >> it's possible they did not. people now suspect that the information that we had that north korea was moving its rocket, something was wrong with it, was it an intentional deceptive move? they thought there would be attempts to shoot it down. they wanted to fool japan. they succeeded. >> and it certainly does strengthen the new young leader kim jong-un domestically. >> absolutely. they have been trying since 1998 to launch a long-range missile and they failed in the previous four attempts. they succeeded in this. it's not a rocket that can deliver a major warhead. there are marriajor hu
is a step, probably an early step, in terms of the developing that capability. jon: well the u.n., the u.s., seoul, said if you launch the missile it will be very provocative act. it could bring on new sanctions. i thought we were sanctioning everything we could in north korea. are we not? >> no, no. again a lot of new techniques have been applied developing new sanctions to iran. one of the methods to apply u.n. and e.u. sanctions of iran was to study the economy of iran. look for have anotherabilities in their financial system and their trade system and that kind of approach has not been applied to north korea very effectively. therefore the sanctions have been rather porous. i would bet north korea buys a lot of things for its missile program in china. we know they buy things for their gas centrifuge program in china. some things are made in germany. probably made in the u.s. china has been a major gap in this whole system. on sanctions and north korea could face tougher action from china might constrict some of its ability to buy things that it absolutely needs for its nuclear progra
